LTL Spot Quoting

Here's a quick tutorial on how to utilize our LTL Spot Quoting tool, handy for larger LTL / Volume Shipments.  

To start off, click the LTL quote option, enter your shipment's specs as you normally would, but instead of Show my rates, select Get a spot quote. (To add Spot Quoting to your account - Contact Us)


Next you'll be taken to the Spot quote entry screen.

Here you'll be able to select your spot quote contacts, equipment type, delivery date, or any needed special instructions.
